    Ok, then terrible

    • Written by from Ottawa

    This is one of the most deceiving products I've ever purchased. It work ok at first, then after a few dings it started to crack eventually the support edges just simply detached. A waste of 50 dollars if you ask me. Go buy some ethernet adapters or something

    Bad Option

    • Written by from Brentwood

    The case was a Cbristmas present and has now broken and cracked in multiple places. It had no unusual or rough use, primarily around the house. The plastic is just brittle and degraded in less than 90 days. Would not buy this again.

    Ok so I got this case for my birthday (March 16th) from my grandmother who did in fact pay for this case. This case is now (March 25th, not even 10 days of having it) cracked, and the clips are all broken. I take good care of my laptop including the case because I am not a person who wants to pay for something twice so I take care of my things. I am very disappointed, and upset to tell my grand-mother she just wasted $50. Thanks Apple... thanks for wasting old people's money -.-

    worth it

    • Written by from Buras

    I have had this clear, hard, snap on case for three years now. It has scratched and broken in places (no cracks, just the snap locks), and that's why I'm looking to replace it. I was surprised to see all the negative reviews for this case. It is difficult to get on and off, but I feel like that is a good thing, because its not going to come off of my computer. It is like a second skin for my laptop, and I don't even know its there. I have many furry pets, and fur gets everywhere, but this case does a fairly good job of keeping stuff out. Every three months, I take the case off and clean my lap top. It still looks as good as the day I bought it. My laptop has ZERO scratches on it! If you ask me, this case did 100% of what it was supposed to (macs are notorious for scratching, and look awful once they've been scratched). Over all a wonderful product to me.

    A poor quality product

    • Written by from Keene

    I had this case on for 1 day, and one of the clasps cracked. Since then, the case sometimes will slip off, and even more of the clasps have broken. The top half is okay, but the bottom half of the case is dreadful.

    Before I bought this case, I spent half the money to get a hard shell case on Amazon (and it came with a keyboard and screen protector!), and it lasted for 3 years. This has lasted 2 months, so I'm never buying this brand again. Buyer beware!

    Above Average Case.

    • Written by from Mount pearl

    Pros: - Customize / Personalize your Macbook to give it that "you" flair.
    - Protect your Macbook from every day scuffs and scratches, awful gouging and dents
    - Offers some drop protection ( off of lap, short distance.. with in reason)

    - Poor Packaging can often cause the case to arrive already scratched ( edit* They have recently started a new package design to address this)
    - The corner clips of the case have an unfortunate frequency of cracking off
    - Protection from dropping is an absolute minimum ( But really .... don't drop your computer)

    I work In an APR and we sell speck, I've seen customers return unhappy with the integrity of the case ( Cracking, splitting, clips breaking )
    and I've seen customers come in saying that their friends won't shut up about the case and that they have to get one too.

    I personally have never had one of my speck cases break, crack or split, I would recommend this product.
    My Red Pro and Blue Air have never looked better, Talk about increasing your resale value, no scratches at all? Cha Ching.

    Speck Macbook Air Case

    • Written by from Ashland

    I purchased this case for my 13 inch macbook air yesterday in calypso blue. For $50, I hoped for something more with a longer warranty than 1 year. I can already see scratches on the front that are quite visible.. Other than that, I like the color and feel better knowing that my laptop is somewhat protected. I also enjoy that you can see the apple logo through the case and it lights up.

    Cracks within a month of use

    • Written by from Chicago

    Don't be fooled by the attractive color. All the clips that attach this cover to my MacAir have broken/cracked, rending this thing horribly useless after a month of owning it. It goes from my protected bag to a desk to a lap desk without being banged around. Save your $50. I'm so sad I wasted a gift card on something that broke so easily.

    Zero stars is really my rating

    • Written by from Broomall

    This is an awful waste of money. Cheap cheap garbage plastic that cracks VERY EASILY when you open your macbook. It seems that bottom corners crack very easily when you open your macbook and you may not notice it until you see that the bottom will not stay on any longer. This is my second purchase of this case because I thought that maybe the first one was just bad luck. I was wrong, it's an awful product and should be given out for free because that's really all it's worth.....NOTHING!!! Same problem BOTH times, cracked bottom corners.

    Horrible Quality

    • Written by from Ajax

    I purchased this case primarily because I had a similar Speck hardshell case for my MacBook Pro. I've had the Pro version for 3+ years without any issues. But the MackBook Air version I purchased cracked along the edge within the first few months. Within less than a year, several of the attachment points have broken off the case, so it no longer stays on my computer and is basically useless. I am very careful with my computer, and from reading the other reviews case cracking seems to be a common issue. Don't waste your money on this product, it does not last!

    Disappointed considering my last Speck case was amazing

    • Written by from Austin

    I had a Speck cover for my old Macbook, which my husband commandeered and it is still going strong (cover and computer). I figured since I was getting a new precious piece of machinery, I should invest in another Speck cover (especially since the last one did it's job so well). When I got this $53 cover, I was surprised at how flimsy it was and that it didn't have the grippy texture my last cover had. I figured since my last cover was legit, this one would somehow do the same job. WRONG...this thing has cracks all over it and I have not dropped it once! I submitted my claim to Speck today, since it has a 1-year warranty. I guess we'll see how that goes, but as of now I feel like this case is a total rip-off!

    Don't waste your money

    I bought it about a week ago and it has started cracking. It also doesn't fit well. I am very careful with my mac, I only move it from my room to downstairs. I would not waste $50 on a case that starts cracking after a week. I am buying a new case.

    Not the best choice

    • Written by from Gatineau

    I've received this case for Christmas last year, and the shell barely holds, and cracked all over the place. Quite a disappointment since I liked it at first but it just broke down easily, and for that price too.

    This case is awful. I bought mine 3 months ago and it has already cracked in so many areas without any hard use. The case cracks from the inside out and around the edges pieces are prone to fall out from what seems like the very wind blowing on it. The case was a mojor waste of money, DON'T BUY IT.

    I would recommend you not to buy this book case. It can be easily broken, and I can't really see the worth of $50. It isn't durable, either.

    Pretty, but terribly made

    • Written by from Anniston

    I love this case as far as how it looks and the accuracy of the color representation (I bought the greenish case). However, after only a few weeks, pieces of my shell started chipping off. Now, I've had it for a couple of months and the piece on the side that grips my macbook air is completely gone. I'm very unsatisfied with this product. You would think for $49.95 Apple could sell a higher-quality product. I have yet to drop my macbook in the case, so I don't know how it holds up as far as that, but I don't recommend buying this product--unless of course you just want to buy something that's pretty but doesn't actually do what it's supposed to.

    $50 Down The Drain

    • Written by from BOULDER

    I am now on my second Speck SmartShell for the MBA 13" I purchased in January 2014. The first one cracked and the tabs that hold the bottom shell on literally disintegrated within 2 months of owning it. I sent it back to Speck (and paid the shipping!) and they sent me another one but this one has the same problem. When I got my 2nd one I also bought one for my hubby's MBP 15" - his has suffered the same fate despite the fact that his laptop never leaves home and mostly lives on a desk. I do take mine to work, in a padded case and I am very fastidious about the care of my laptop but still I've got a case with two missing corners, several cracks and no way to keep the bottom shell attached. This case, in my opinion, is an epic failure with regards to materials and lack of durability. I wish I'd spent that $100 elsewhere.

    Waste of money

    • Written by from Ballwin

    Had two, the first one lasted a few months before one of the clips sheered off the bottom part of the case somehow. The Apple store was cool enough to replace it for me but within a couple months, it happened again to my second one. Waste of money... would not buy again.

    Cracked After 2 Days :(!

    • Written by from Toronto

    I received this case and was shocked at the quality for the $50 price. I put it on my new Airbook, and it didn't really go on that easily. 2 days later I realized that one of the corners was lifting so I went to pull it off and the case cracked. So not only does it not go on properly, but when you go to fix it, you'll break the cheap flimsy plastic. Don't waste your time and money on this garbage.
    Luckily Apple has a great return policy so I was able to return it at no cost.
